Wireless Hardware White Papers

Wireless access has special security considerations. Many wired networks base the security on physical access control, trusting all the users on the local network, but if wireless access points are connected to the network, anyone on the street or in the neighbour office could connect. The most common solution is wireless traffic encryption.

The term “perfect storm” is used to describe when several forces come together and create a large, single event that has transformative effects. A technology perfect storm took place in the 1990s when Internet services, low-cost home computers, browsers and affordable broadband all came together and created the Internet revolution. This revolution launched an entirely new economic model that sparked new ways of doing business, changed the way we work, and allowed us to blend our personal and professional lives. At first, these new ways of working were the exception. But the transformation to an Internet-based work style is now complete, and this style has become very much the norm.

While providing your customers and guests with Wi-Fi, you can give them pertinent information, individual attention, and special offers. And you can learn how, where, and when they move through your venue. Customers or guests passing through your store, hotel, or other venue increasingly expect free Wi-Fi. They also expect personal service. You can give them both, which can help boost your sales. And in doing so, you can gain information that will help make your venue more attractive and profitable.

The evolution from business connectivity to business mobility is unlike previous compute transitions because it redefines how people work. Historically, companies provided access to the necessary applications and data from corporate-issued devices such as laptops and desktops in controlled operating environments. This tightly integrated environment tethered workers to a specific device and operating system, and even sometimes to a location. Mobility breaks these shackles and enables workers to change the way they work.

Midsize firms from every region and industry are finding themselves under increasing pressure to improve productivity and business performance. Firms with 100 up to 1,000 or even 2,500 employees are still agile enough to respond to new opportunities, but they typically lack the comprehensive resources of larger companies to empower workers, manage processes, and generally drive successful customer engagement. This white paper examines the opportunity midmarket firms have in leveraging network infrastructure for competitive success in the new cloud and mobility era. Midmarket firms can improve their competitive position by providing more efficient access to advanced productivity resources.

This part of the CVD describes design considerations to implement a successful BYOD solution and different deployment models to address diverse business cases. Other parts of the CVD provide more details on how to implement unique use cases. There are numerous ways to enable a BYOD solution based on the unique business requirements of a specific organization. While some organizations may take a more open approach and rely on basic authentication, other organizations will prefer more secure ways to identify, authenticate, and authorize devices. A robust network infrastructure with the capabilities to manage and enforce these policies is critical to a successful BYOD deployment.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.
